March 30, 2022
Professional poker player and PokerRoad blogger, Thuy Doan, is recovering today after a successful surgery to remove an aggressive soft tissue sarcoma in her upper left calf, by means of partial amputation of her left leg.

In hopes of saving the leg, Thuy had been battling the rare form of cancer for more than seven months using a whole host of both conventional and alternative treatments, but unfortunately discovered recently that the sarcoma was growing, and that surgery was now her best bet- and a necessary step- in preventing the cancer from spreading and endangering her life even further.

It’s been a difficult path to say the least for Thuy and one that she has bravery chosen to share with her many fans and friends through every stage of the process, by means of her twitter account and popular blog

This often intimate and always personal account of one woman's struggle when forced to battle cancer, has only served to increase the love and support the entire poker community seems to feel for Thuy, as evidenced by the infamous head shaving party in Thuy’s honor held in December, when many notable pros including Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Doyle Brunson, Eli Elezra, Tom “durrrr” Dwan and Barry Greenstein, all chose to shave their heads in a show of support for Thuy.
